Updates go here!


1/30 update - Mrs. Crowell co-wrote a grant that was accepted by the St. Johns Water Management District.  On Tuesday, January 29, 2019, the co-writers from the City of Port Orange Reclaimed Water Plant Steve Parnell and from the Water Treatment Plant, Christina Potts, presented how the aquifer water is treated to become our drinking water and how the reclaimed sewage water is recycled for irrigation water...pretty interesting!!! We definitely don't want to drink contaminated water!!!  (They also said to STOP using flushable wipes as those are NOT flushable and clog up their pipes!  They DO NOT disintegrate!!!)
